Billiken Sports Center



• Saint Louis hit three home runs in a 7-run sixth inning en route to a 10-3 victory over Kansas City Tuesday afternoon at the Billiken Sports Center.

• Kallen Loveless collected her seventh win of the season in the circle, going the distance and allowing just two earned runs, three hits and one walk while striking out four.



• Saint Louis went on top with two unearned runs in the bottom of the third inning. The first run scored on an error, and Alyssa Chavez delivered an RBI single.

• Loveless had a no-hitter through one out in the fifth, but Kansas City took a 3-2 lead in the frame on a three-run home run.

• The Billikens answered in the bottom of the frame with Gabbie Kowalik’s RBI single, knotting the score at 3-3.

• In the sixth, SLU scored what proved to be the winning run when Mackenzie Lawson and Kaylyn Breitbach began the inning with consecutive doubles. Allie Herron made it 5-3 with an RBI single, and Sadie Wise broke open the game with a three-run home run, her third of the season. Maria Connell and Chavez provided insurance with solo home runs, the second of the year for both.



• Wise added a double and a single for a three-hit afternoon.

• Kowalik, Breitbach and Connell had two hits apiece.

• Aubrey Hacke doubled and Kat Lane singled.
